The green sapphire crystal used by Rolex in the Ref. 116400GV is unique in the watch industry. Rolex glass is created in a secret and sophisticated process, and its bevelled edges almost look as if it is glowing. Nevertheless, the sapphire crystal of Ref. 116400GV remains scratch-resistant and lightfast. Due to the impracticable complexity of manufacturing this glass, Rolex has not even patented the green glass.
Particularly when combined with the blue sunburst dial, the Ref. 116400GV is a perfect summer watch. The colour mix of the green glass, the blue dial and the orange hand make the watch into a true colour explosion.
